Wallis Sands - Rye, NH
Hide tide at Wallis Sands beach in Rye, New Hampshire means only the rocks are visible like in this painting by Jean Mertinooke.
When they were young, Jean and her twin sister, Joan, would take turns riding with their father on his mail route through rural Tamworth, New Hampshire. Childhood memories of scenic Mount Chocorua served as the inspiration for many of her area landscapes when she took up painting in 1954. She now lives in Kensington, NH.
